What would be the structure of your ideal salary, and why?
I was wondering how people would respond if they could essentially create their own incentive package. Do you really just want to be making X more than you are now? Would you rather make just a little more if you could get a better health insurance package, and what would be in it? How much less would you take for more benefits, and what kind of benefits – or how much less would you take for more paid vacation? Would you trade paid vacation (but still be able to take the time off without pay) for a completely flexible schedule (i.e., you can structure your workday however you want, and spread it out over as much or as little of the week as you want)?
I’d love to here both what people want, and also what they think the realistic barriers are to making that happen. Everyone should be creative, and here is some information on incentive programs, but also be realistic based on what kind of work you do (feel free to share as much as you’d like, but realize the internet is a public place ;-)).
